How long do the Shutter Precision PV8/PD8/SV8/SD8 dynamo hub bearings really last, in absolute terms or relative to a SON 28?

Shutter Precision has quoted 10,000 (under 8 months) and 20,000 kilometers (not much over a year) in various places.

While that'd be fine in a normal hub, the dynamo hub requires wheel disassembly so that halves can be unscrewed.

Schmidt claims 50,000+ on the SON 28.

That's the sticking point which has a PV8 and SON 28 sitting in my starbike shopping cart with the latter over twice the price.
